With about 7,700 members, AEI represents a unique multi-disciplinary field with members holding academic degrees in Civil Engineering, Architectural Engineering, Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering, or have expertise in Lighting Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Acoustics, and Constructed Facilities Security. Although professionals with such degrees or expertise have traditionally been associated with other technical societies, AEI has now been recognized as a technical society for all professionals dealing with all aspects of engineering applications to buildings. In particular, the focus on integration of various disciplines in design, construction, and maintenance of buildings has become like a trademark for AEI, and many of its activities can be identified with the “integration” brand.
AEI is especially proud of having active Student Chapters in universities that have AE Departments or Programs. These chapters should be considered as some of the most valuable assets for the AE profession as they provide many opportunities for students to gain executive and leadership experience that will bring great benefit to the industry besides students’ formal education when they start their professional careers. AEI is committed to strongly support Student Chapters and promote their activities. One of the major activities of Student Chapters is participation in ASCE Charles Pankow Foundation Annual Architectural Engineering Student Competition.
